2002 FCX

2002 FCX

Honda introduced its prototype FCX fuel cell vehicle in September 2002 , and delivered first Honda FCX fuel cell vehicles in Japan and the U.S. on same day in December 2002.

The FCX utilizes a bigger, 350-atmosphere high-pressure hydrogen fuel tank to attain a range of 355km. A motor with improved output characteristics in the mid-to-high speed ranges is combined with Honda's own independently developed high-performance ultra-capacitor energy storage system, to achieve smooth, powerful acceleration.

A newly developed three-gauge instrument cluster presents information on energy management, remaining vehicle range, and vehicle information, in an easy-to-understand display.
